Just had a look at last year’s “Year in Review” blog posting for inspiration for this year’s “Year in Review” blog posting and saw that I ended last year’s “Year in Review” blog posting with: “I feel like I need to start making some plans for something epic for 2014!” I had been commenting on how my 2013 was basically one amazing trip, but everything else was just lots of school1. Well, I didn’t actually plan a bunch of epic things for 2014, but they just sort of happened2.
I started the year off by completing my MBA, which had been my primary focus for the past two years. In fact, I got word that my final paper was accepted – meaning my MBA was 100% complete – on my birthday! That was a pretty spectacular birthday present and a great start to my year!
Then I got my kitties, the awesomest kitties to ever have kittied. They are cute, smart, funny, and very loving and they make me happy every day.
Other epic occurrences included my MBA graduation, buying a condo, and getting an amazing new job. And then, as if all that epicness weren’t enough, in July I met an amazing new guy. Like 100% made of awesome. You may have noticed him on such blog postings as this race and this race. And he makes me happy every day!
And while minor by comparison to the above, I also won a hockey championship (and came within one game of winning the summer season championship too!) and ran a total of 5 races3, including achieving my second best ever half marathon time in Hollywood and my personal best 10 km at the Rock’n’Roll Vancouver. I worked on a successful political campaign, improved my hockey game by taking lessons and started salsa lessons. I’ve also started on a top secret project with a friend of mine that I’m hoping with turn into something awesome, but that will be revealed in due course.
So, long story short, 2014 = best year ever… so far. I’m anticipating 2015 will be pretty epic too!
